Chevron gives pizza vouchers after Pa. explosion

DILLINER, Pa. (AP) — Chevron is drawing criticism on social media for giving out free pizza coupons to people who live near a Pennsylvania gas well that exploded and burned for days, leaving one worker missing and presumed dead.

The fire broke out Feb. 11 at the well in Dunkard Township, near Bobtown, about 50 miles south of Pittsburgh. It burned for four days.

Some critics took to Twitter, blogs and anti-fracking websites Tuesday to criticize Chevron for going to homes near the well and dropping off certificates for a large pizza and two-liter drink from Bobtown Pizza.

A Chevron spokeswoman said the vouchers are a “token of appreciation” for neighbors’ patience — and to support the local pizza shop that provided food for first-responders and workers on the site.
